Book Tour ~ #Review ~ Lucian Divine by Renée Carlino



“My guardian angel is a drunk.”

Evelyn Casey's life is at a standstill. She's in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It's absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day.

And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he's a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he's brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he's brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as ----. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created.

For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God.

Yes, God as in God.

5 Stars

It's been some time since a book has impacted me so deeply or took me by surprise the way this one did. The blurb really caught my eye, a drunk guardian angel? I was both intrigued and amused. As soon as I began reading, I was completely captivated.
Carlino's beautifully written and unique story was so much more than I anticipated. I expected to read about the comedic adventures of these characters with some sexy stuff thrown in, an overall enjoyable read. What I didn't expect was flawed and incredibly rich characters who came to life on the page, or the intense emotional toll their story had on me. I was wrecked. Carlino was able to create something more than just words on a page; this was a book I felt, I experienced. I found myself getting lost within the story and, for the first time in quite awhile, I struggled to move on when it was over.
